My Ping.Jaumavensis seems to be growing UP and not out or spreading.
What are your thoughts on this plant?
Too much light? Not enough light? Too much or too little water?
I'm using high output T5 lights

What do you mean its not spreading?!?! The reason its growing up is because of all the little plantlets at the base that are growing and pushing up the main plant

Is that OK? Is that something I need to worry about, or just let it do it's thing?
Is this common on small pings? Or any pings in general?
THANK YOU!

The plant won't spread outward from this growth pattern without being physically separated and potted out. It will simply continue growing on top of itself in an ever-expanding sphere. The species/hybrids that divide like this will grow like this often enough, and you can leave them as is, or you can separate the rosettes once they're grown out far enough and pot them all neatly in the soil.

Those are definitely carnivorous leaves, Jeff. You can see the stickies on the upper side.
